XVID files are GREEN!
I have a problem with XVID files.
The codec is installed. Gspot says the file is ok.
Tho if I try to play it, I can only hear the sound! No video, just sth green on the scree! Please help, I really have no idea what to do. :cry:

You dont tell us much...
Check your prefs, maybe there is something what Xvid dont like, like force RGB or such thing...

BTW, into MS mediaplayer Xvid files working fine? :|

I using FFD show for all, Xvid, all DivX and such mp4 formats :wink:

I had the same problem. If you have Nimo codec Pack, new Xvid movies doesn't play right. I uninstalled Nimo codec Pack and then I installed just Xvid codec.

Hope that will help you :)

Thanx, but i already had the Xvid Codec.
I just needed to enable the force RGB option.

I just needed to enable the force RGB option.
It's not normal. You should be able to play xvid files without problem with RGB uncheck. Are your video drivers up to date ? Which video card do you have ? Which OS and DirectX ? What is the resolution of the movie ?

Try this:
regsvr32 /u (from command prompt)

And if that don't work, then this:

You have the Nimo Pack
You need to desinstall the NimoPack and you can install it back, but don't put the following option :

-DirectShow Filter
*Ffdshow Directshow 2002-04-09

Maybe you need to don't install something else in the DirectShow Filter, but I don't remember... :? Try this, and if it's doesn't work try to don't install the following options as well :

-DirectShow Filter
*Fraunhofer MPEG2 Vob Filter A/V
*MPEG-2 Splitter AC3 XForm
*I-Media Multi-MPEG2-Source
*Claud/Dump/Wavdest DS Filters

Good luck!

Solution is much simpler.

After installing Nimo Codec Pack the ffdshow codec will grab the xvid-video. Go into properties of video, select ffdshow codec and again properties.

Here you find an option, that ffdshow plays xvid. You need to uncheck this option.
